As you well know, asphalt can be an expensive project. From initial lay down to resurfacing, the cost is substantial.
There are many reasons why proper maintenance only makes sense. #1 It saves you money
There are several factors that contribute to the wear and tear on asphalt, traffic volume and
weight of the traffic . You have seen the signs
......"No heavy trucks"......
Gas and oil film residue, from the cars using
it daily and Ice melt methods in the winter will break down the ability of the asphalt to hold its bonding agent and weaken surface strength over time. The next time your at a resturant look where the cars park and you can see the settling of the asphalt.
One of the most neglected area's of asphalt maintenance repair is the crack fill process. If cracks are left unrepaired, water will enter under the asphalt and erode the base. Rain or melt off, freezing in the winter will cause water expansion in these cracks and you now have a pot hole, which is more costly to repair.
The crack repair solution is a simple process: grind or rout out the crack remove the debris with compressed air, heat the area and apply a water tight seal with a rubberized crack sealant.
Also, to consider is the appearance of a well maintained parking area. Yes curb appeal in today's often empty parking lots is more important than ever , because it offers
customers a positive first impression of your tenants.

Most repairs consist of cutting and removing the damaged areas,repairing the base if required and adding fill then laying hot asphalt over the repair area and compacting. Acceptable compaction in small areas requires a vibratory hand operated machine. Larger areas we use a 2-4 ton roller.
